This painting expresses the artists interest in prehistoric mark making in the form of a modern abstract landscape. There is the suggestion of a handprint on stone or perhaps marks in the sand made by the moving tide. There is something prehistoric here and yet very contemporary. The simple palette and flat colours do not immediately indicate as to what the piece is about ,but rather offer the viewer a space to reflect on it for themselves. The landscape format of foreground,middle,horizon and background are really the vehicle in which the artist expresses something more timeless.

Dan Knox, artist with Wychwood Art. Born in Kelso in the Scottish Borders in 1977, Dan has travelled and lived in this area for most of his adult life. He has an endless fascination with the beauty of the landscapes in this area in particular and they continue to provide the inspiration for his work. He studied art and design at Newcastle college in 1995 and has since continued to paint, selling through galleries and private collectors, both in the UK and abroad. Beginning as a figurative landscape artist mainly he has become more drawn to semi abstract and abstract painting in recent years. Inspired by a spiritual experience of the natural world, his paintings explore the union of subject and object; the merging of ‘viewer' and ‘viewed' in a wholistic apprehension of natural beauty. His expressionistic approach to landscape; using broad shapes and blocks of colour, along with techniques of gouging and rubbing into the canvas create texture and suggest a visceral connection with the work. In more recent work there is a sometimes unfinished feel to the paintings; an openness created by a move toward pure abstraction. The intention is to create a ‘space' within the viewer where an apprehension of the work exists without the need for figurative interpretation, echoing the experience of the natural world they capture.
